While most of the western countries celebrate this on the first day of Januari, the Thai celebrate it on multiple days, starting at 13 April until 15 April. The celebration often goes paired with a few traditions. The first thing you will notice as soon as the celebration starts, is that people start throwing water over eachother. The streets are full of containers with water, waterguns and balloons. And it's getting even better, because these days are among the hottest days in the warm climate of Thailand.
